The longevity of your lip blush depends on your skin, health, and lifestyle. On average you lip blush will last 3-5 years.
Will I need more than one session?
Lip blushing is a two part process. A perfecting session is required 6-8 weeks after your initial appointments.
Can I get lip blush if I have lip fillers?
Yes. Lip fillers do not interfere with the lip blush process. But, you must wait 4 weeks before and after your lip blush appointment to get fillers.
Can I get lip blush if I have a cold core?
If you have an active cold sore outbreak, we will not be able to do the procedure until it has been treated and cleared.
If you have EVER had a cold sore in the past, it is very important that you get an antiviral medication prescribed before your appointment to prevent an outbreak from occurring.
What can I expect after my appointment?
You can expect swelling during and post treatment.
Luckily it does not last very long. (24-48 hours)
Expect to drink all liquids with a straw and avoid eating salty or acidic foods for 7 days after. No kissing on or near the mouth for 7 days to avoid bacterial or viral infections.
Your lips will go through various peeling phases for about 7-10 days, you will not be able to pick or scratch the skin as this will result in patchy lip color.
The Lip Blush healing process is relatively short. Day 3-5 you will experience dry flakey lips. It feels as though they
have been layering matte lipstick on. Once the pigment flakes off it will apear as though no pigment has been retained. Over the next 6-8 weeks the color will gradually ‘bloom’ into a lovely soft shade.
Before your Permanent Lip Blush Appointment
1 week before
Gently exfoliate lips daily with a sugar scrub. We suggest mixing sugar and coconut oil to use as a gentle exfoliator to prep the lip skin before the procedure.
Avoid blood thinning supplements like fish oil, garlic, magnesium, green tea, vitamin E, ginger, ginkgo biloba, etc
24 - 48 hrs before and after your procedure
No alcohol, or blood thinning medications. Tylenol is acceptable.
On the day of the procedure
Avoid coffee & caffeine. This can cause sensitivity and increase bleeding & swelling and results in less color retention. Be sure to eat before you arrive for your appointment. Your lips will be numbed during the procedure and eating may be difficult for the first few hours after.
You should avoid eating too much salty foods, and exposure to sun or wind leading up to your appointment to keep your lip skin as healthy as possible.
